Chapter 9. Troubleshooting > To delete a bad thumbnail (I)

To delete a bad thumbnail (I)

1.
Figure out which image causes the problem by sorting photos by film roll, zooming in so only one picture shows in the display pane in organize mode, then scrolling through photos until iPhoto crashes, noting which photo showed just before the crash. Repeat the process to the point just before the crash, and then select the last good photo and use the Show Image File AppleScript script to show it in the Finder.

2.
In the same folder as the photo you've found, there should be a Thumbs folder. Look at the files in that folder to identify the offending thumbnail.

3.
Drag that thumbnail to the Desktop, duplicate another thumbnail, and give it the same name as the one you moved to the Desktop.

4.
Launch iPhoto and see if the crash still occurs. If everything works fine, fix the appearance of the replacement thumbnail using the next technique.
